Should I Choose Coloured Window Frames?
Coloured windows frames are a perfect example of the way the window industry is always striving to improve and innovate.
Twenty years ago, if you wanted coloured window frames, aluminium windows were your only option.
UPVC coloured window frames existed, but we wouldn’t have recommended them. Today’s technology wasn’t there and the colour tended to fade, peel or crack. White window frames were clearly the default option.
Fast forward to today and it’s all changed. Today, you can choose coloured frames whether you’re having UPVC windows or aluminium windows.
The technology has advanced in leaps and bounds on UPVC window frames. Coloured window frames are more than a match for their plain white counterparts. The colour won’t fade, peel or rot and will stay looking bright and fresh for years to come.
Whichever material you choose, you’ll be getting windows of outstanding quality that will enhance your home.
It’s also true to say that coloured window frames are becoming an increasingly popular choice. We’re seeing more and more customers asking about coloured window frames. Visitors to our Cheddar window showroom are spending more time in the section of the showroom devoted to colour as they look to personalise their home.
What are the most popular colours to choose?
We’ve got plenty of experience fitting coloured window frames in homes all over Somerset and the surrounding counties. It means we know which are the most popular colours. It also means we can offer advice on the colours that would look good in your home.
People choose coloured window frames for lots of different reasons. The right shade in a modern home is an exciting way to add a touch of individuality and personality. In a period home, coloured window frames are a lovely way to enhance the traditional heritage aesthetics of a property.
Chartwell Green is the classic pale heritage green. It’s an understated and elegant shade that looks superb on Somerset stone properties both old and new.
Anthracite Grey is a very striking contemporary shade. It’s a deep, dark grey that looks great in modern properties. It also looks good in some period properties because it can fade into the background and direct the eye to the building itself.
Cream is a good introduction to coloured window frames. It’s a soft colour that adds a touch of visual interest to any home. It looks wonderfully stylish in homes of all ages.
It may be useful to know that you don’t have to have colour on the interior frame. Many customers choose to have a colour on the exterior part of the frame but white on the interior. This is because they find that it’s easier to match white frames to the rest of their internal décor.
These colours are just the start. There are plenty more to choose from. We also offer a range of woodgrain finishes that look stunning too. To see the full range for yourself, come into our Cheddar window showroom and see the colours for yourself. We’ll also be happy to answer any questions you might have.
